seems like the trend now since every city has about three to four groups of "reviewers" who want to get comped at the door and write a review about a haunt. I have seen a lot of reviewer groups charging attractions to have links or banner graphics on their site. Is it just me or is this not only bad form, but a serious breach of trust and conflict of interest. I'm curious to know what everyone else thinks about this.

I think it is bad for a reviewer to ask for tickets to review your haunt - for two reasons one is most" reveiwers" have no more credentials to review than I credentials to do brain surgery and number two is it's like a food critic asking for a free meal to review the food - even though most reviewers have kissed our asses to tell us how scary Fright Factory is
